At Tritons Swim School we break our adult swimming lessons into four groups, beginners, improvers, advanced and masters.  The different groups follow the same ASA Learn to Swim Pathway as the children but the stages are grouped together.  Please see below for the description of the stages with the location and times of lessons.  

  • Adult Beginners (Stages 1-3) 

Stages 1-3 focus on water confidence, floating skills and by the end of Stage 3 swimmers will be able to swim 10m on their front and back 

Lessons are:

  •  Adult Improver (Stages 4-6)
Stages 4-6 focus on the technical aspects of the four strokes: front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.  The stages concentrate first on the kick of each stroke, progressing to the arms and by the end of Stage 6 swimmers will be able to swim 25m. 


Lessons are: 

  • Adult Advanced (Stage 7)

  • Walthamstow Tritons Masters (Stage 8+) 

All Masters sessions are held at The Community Pool and are a little different to the other adult lessons.  The sessions are training sessions taken by qualified coaches and swimmers work towards taking part in competitions and galas.  The training fees are £60 per month, payable by direct debit and in addition to three swimming training sessions a week, Masters swimmers are invited to four FREE aquatics sports sessions per week.  See below for all of the session times.  If you are interested in joining the Walthamstow Tritons, please Contact Us , visit us in the poolside office at The Community Pool or come along to a Tuesday evening training session and talk to a member of staff.
